Opportunities for women vary widely from country to country and a main aim is to enhance the participation of women in all mathematical communities.

The new WiM website was launched at the International Congress of Women Mathematicians on August 12th just prior to the International Congress of Mathematicians, at the address

The site includes information about organizations, people, events, resources and initiatives of interest to women mathematicians world-wide. In order to maximize the usefulness of this site, we welcome suggestions from the community. Indeed, advice concerning items for inclusion is important to us.
